[K12OSN] [Likely OT] Getting sound working

For hardware problems, I always boot w/ Knoppix.  If it works right
under Knoppix, then there is hope.  If Knoppix doesn't properly
configure the hardware, I give up.

Subject: [K12OSN] [Likely OT] Getting sound working

I am trying to tweak my laptop (HP Pavillion tx1000) to get sound
working. The results of trying so far have been:

1. Tried with Debian Etch / Ubuntu 7.04
2. The sound module that is loaded is snd-hda-intel 3. On boot the sound
system does not star0 and the mute button-cum-indicator turn orange.
4. If I blacklist the module snd-hda-intel then I am able to try with
various additional options by adding option snd-hda-intel model=?????
in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base This allows me to boot without loading any
sound modules without the mute button going orange till I actually load
the module with modprobe command.
5. I have not been able to find exact option that will work. Have tried
3stack 3stack-dig hp auto etc.

What further areas I should be looking at? If needed I can post outputs
from lsmod lspci etc. I am trying to google and search high and low for
any one having working solution to this. I thought collective wisdom on
this list may give me some pointers.
